Attendance Procedures

In order to maximize student learning, students should be in class and persistent in their learning. Studies have shown that when students miss more than 10% of class time, learning and long-term education sharply decline. The purpose of the attendance policy is to encourage students to be in class as much as possible, and to alert teachers, staff, parents, and students when the student is approaching a danger zone. We will be rewarding and recognizing students with excellent attendance periodically throughout the school year.

*Students are encouraged to make up attendance infractions quickly with their teachers in the classroom.  This allows for more specific instruction and learning recovery.  Make-up credit for a given class period must be done with the teacher of that specific period, and must be made up within 2 weeks of the end of the term.



Excused/Unexcused Attendance


Excused Absences and Tardies

Parents may excuse a student’s absence by a signed note, calling the attendance office or through Skyward online attendance. Absences should be excused within 10 school days (two weeks). A tardy is defined as when a student is late to class within the first 20 minutes of class time. After a student is 20 minutes late, the student is marked absent. 

Unexcused Absences and Truancies

A truancy is a confirmed absence from school or class without prior parent approval and is determined by the school’s administration. Confirmed truancies cannot be excused by a parent. Additionally, students who leave class early without being properly checked-out by a parent or guardian will be considered truant.

Pre-Approved Absences

Pre-approved Requests

Students are strongly encouraged to obtain pre-absence approval for missed classes.   Arranging absence make-up before they happen shows responsibility and dependability.  This includes a short form to be filled out after discussions with each of the student’s teachers. These forms are located in the attendance office or on the school website and should be filled out and turned in at least one week prior to the absence/s. Pre-approved absences do affect perfect attendance recognition.

Patriot’s Day

The morning of September 11, 2001 remains one of the most pivotal points in American history. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the 9/11. Those events are forever etched in the minds of those who remember the day.

This day gives us time to reflect on those lives that were lost during this devastating event. There are many things we can do to show our love and respect to all those nearly, 3000 lives taken. We must consider what we stand for as a nation and how we can work together as a nation to make this a better place.

We can observe this day by having a moment of silence, reading the names of those who lost their lives, lower flags in remembrance, provide service locally or create your own day of observance.
